Worth a Look

Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet:
"I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world."

The Bible, Matthew 13:34-35

His disciples asked him what this parable meant. He said, "The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, 'though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.'

The Bible, Luke 8:9-10

The Mystic Christ
by Ethan Walker III

Jesus, Buddha and Krishna are One


About the Author

Walker was a practicing counter-culture hippie in 1967 at the age of 18 when he began to explore eastern philosophy and the European mystery schools. He spent two years in the Rosicrucian Order followed by four years under the tutelage of Mark Prophet, the founder of The Summit Lighthouse. He studied, lived and worked at that organization as a renunciate. After the death of Mr. Prophet, Walker had an intense spiritual experience while studying the teachings of Ramana Maharshi.

Book Description

The Mystic Christ is an ancient tale of mystic union, salvation, and enlightenment. It is the careful uncovering of a lost treasure of immeasurable value, long buried in the suffocating darkness of conventional orthodoxy on one side, and blind fundamentalist extremism on the other. From the viewpoint of the world’s mystical religious traditions, the brilliant light of the Master’s way is revealed as a penetrating radical non-duality unifying all people and all of life. His path to this all-embracing unity is the spiritual practice of pure selfless love. Love God intensely, love our neighbor as our own Self, bless those that curse us, and pray for those that mistreat us. Love has been lost, becoming nothing more than a word in the dictionary and, yet, it remains the foundation of Jesus’ message.

The Mystic Christ is also a compelling story of the ego, the personification of ignorance, and how it has distorted and subverted the sublime sayings of the Master, twisting reality into unreality and light into darkness. The ego is the Antichrist in this ancient drama that has gripped every culture for all time in its talons of self-centered perception. The ego is anti-love.

Adam and Eve were not the first people, the nature of man is good, scripture is not infallible, Jesus is one of the ways, all religions are paths to God, reincarnation is in the Bible, the resurrection as a personal spiritual awakening, and the error of eternal damnation are all carefully and lovingly revealed in the life and sayings of Jesus.

The Mystic Christ is at once profoundly fascinating, deeply historic and electric with the vibration of the mystical experience.

Finding God's Love: The Theory and Practice of Love and Devotion As a Spiritual Path
by Ethan Walker III


As a spiritual vehicle, selfless love for the Divine plays well for the practitioners of every faith. Because of this, Finding God’s Love will be enthusiastically received by the followers of any spiritual discipline. Love is the universal cosmic springboard because love is the nature of existence. Within the pages of this extraordinary work, the reader will be led to a deep understanding of the goal of human existence, which is God realization, and why and how love can bring us into the fullness of this dimensionless state of being. Also clearly revealed is the nature of the ego, the spoiler of love, and the soul-stifling impact of our own negativity. In a world that is mostly bereft of love in any form, this book is as timely as it is timeless.

  • Understand the nature of the universe as love

  • Explore the effect of love in spiritual practice on the human psyche

  • Practice the simple but powerful visualizations and prayers to expand our own love for God

  • Awaken in love by dissolving selfishness and ego-centered emotional addictions

  • Know beyond all doubt that God is aware of your love and loving you in return

  • How to do it and why – this is a practical hands-on book; a manual for enlightenment

Book Description

Soft Moon Shining is an invitation to step into the heart of the Divine Mother. Her perpetual dance of cosmic bliss plays out through the eons as the creation and dissolution of worlds within worlds. Yet God, in the feminine form of the Mother - as the Absolute made Immanent - is ready to shower Her love and affection on any who care to turn their gaze toward her fiery heart.

This work of poetry is both profound and beautiful in its ability to arrest the reader's conventional mind, plunging the soul into the cauldron of divine intoxication and immortal bliss. Each poem is a meditation on the Mother of the universe. Feel Her love and Her compassion as the Divine Mother hugs each reader in an embrace of timeless love.

Dance with God in the form of the Mother! Revel in the call of the infinite! Swoon with joy as the heart opens wide to the roaring river of Mother love. Soft Moon Shining continues in the tradition of those great poets and lovers of God, Ramprasad, Hafiz, and Rumi.
